Cockroaches have long antennae and six legs, with the latter being somewhat long and spiny. They are flat on the bottom and rounded upfront, allowing them to hide in tiny cracks or fissures that touch both the top side and underside of their body. Immature cockroaches, known as nymphs, look like small, wingless versions of adult cockroaches. They are typically 1/4 to 1/2 the size of adults and have a light brown or tan color. Nymphs do not have the characteristic spiny legs of adults, and their antennae are much shorter.
Cockroaches are a health hazard because they can contaminate food with their feces and saliva. They can also spread disease-causing bacteria.
1. Roaches may also be found in clean settings. It is a widespread misconception that a roach infestation only happens in unsanitary places, although it will be more likely if there is a lot more food available.
2. Cockroaches are commonly found in commercial kitchens, bakeries, and restaurants. If you have roaches in your business, it is important to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible as they can cause health problems for both you and your customers.
3. A clean kitchen is a must. Roaches will look for humid areas with water or excessive dampness to lay their eggs. The sink in the kitchen should never be full of dishes or standing water.
4. The major aim of a roach is food waste. They can eat grease left on cooktops or particles of food that fall behind appliances or furniture.
